Abe Ravelstein is een briljante hoogleraar aan een prominente universiteit in de Verenigde Staten. Hij heeft groots en meedogenloos geleefd - maar ook op veel te grote voet. Zijn jongere vriend Chick adviseert hem een boek vor een groot publiek te schrijven, dat tot hun beider verbazing een onvervalste bestseller wordt. Ravelstein benoemt Chick tot zijn biograaf, en beiden reizen af naar Parijs om Ravelsteins succes te vieren. In hotel Crillon voeren ze lange gesprekken over sterfelijkheid, filosofie en geschiedenis, maar ook over de liefde, oude en nieuwe vriendschappen, zijden dassen en vaudevillesketches uit een grijs verleden. eenmaal terug in Amerika wordt de toon van hun gesprekken serieuzer, somber zelfs, als duidelijk wordt dat Ravelstein seropositief is en niet lang meer heeft te leven.

Introduction Abe Ravelstein is a capacious, vibrant, larger-than-life character; a teacher who insists that the ideas of Plato, Aristotle, and Nietzsche are vitally important to his students' lives; a philosopher who is committed to saving human dignity from encroaching "boobism"; and at the same time a man who luxuriates in all the sensual pleasures life has to offer, from Armani suits to the ... Ravelstein suggests in turn that Chick write a memoir or a life of him, and during the course of a celebratory trip to Paris the two share thoughts on mortality, philosophy and history, loves and friends, old and new, and vaudeville routines from the remote past. Ravelstein's beloved, the "Chinese prince" Nickie is slightly better realized, though he is mostly seen by Chick/Bellow as an analogue of the Jewish American princess for whom one is glad to buy things. The love between Ravelstein and Nickie is beyond Bellow/Chick's imaginative grasp. Ravelstein, by Saul Bellow. New York: Viking, 2000, 224 pp., $24.95. Watch out! This review isn't going to be particularly objective. I've read every word that Saul Bellow has written (and some that he hasn't), and I admire him as one of America's greatest writers.
